They removed the Expected Range for Most Drivers entirely.

It deemphasizes that how you drive affects what you see, though this is in the small print of the new label (as it was before):

"Actual results will vary for many reasons, including driving conditions and how you drive..."

Some buyers seem to think the numbers on the EPA label are guarantees. They are not, they are guidelines.

I think the older sticker was clearer. Ultimately it does not matter, Subaru neither gets to call the shots about how the car is tested for the EPA numbers, nor gets to decide what to print on the label as the EPA numbers. That all falls under the auspices of the EPA.
